a phase... i hope.

My baby girl is going thru a phase… at least I am so hoping it’s a phase because if it’s long term.. I think I might go insane!!!

She wants me… all. The. Time. She has to be right on me.. me carrying her or her climbing on me. She wants to be by my side all the time… sleep with me at night… every night.  I am starting to feel overwhelmed. 

This past couple weeks has been the worst.  She hasn’t been listening to me… Shes been acting out…  Argueing non stop with her brother…  Throwing fits.  

I honestly don’t know what to do anymore… I feel horrible cuz I feel like I am going crazy.  I need a break.  I so wish her father would come by once in a while and take her for a night or hell even just a day, a couple hours… something!!

I am scared if I give into her she will end up like I was growing up… Needing to sleep with in my moms bed till I was like 12!! Yes… I said 12!! I had to always have someone there… Always…  Or at least fall asleep with someone there… Always. Even if it was a friend.  I had to have someone there. It all changed once I turned 12/13. I wanted to be alone as much as possible. Lol.
I am also scared that if I don’t give into her.. she will end up like that too… or will be constantly trying to find whatever it is she’s seeking now… and will find it in the wrong places.. like me too. Lol.

So I dunno what to do. Just pray. The Lord has helped me thru something similar with her before… so I know He will again…  Just right now… its frustrating.

I am exhausted.  I love her more than anything in the world… and I dunno what to do.

Blessings N Love

  1. Pray sounds good to me.

    And it is just a phase.

  2. It is a will get through this one and move on to the next one! Some are better than the others and same are worse but they always keep changing. Have patience with her. Yall will make it!


Let me know what you think... good, bad, and the downright ugly...
